Okay, so you decided to go to Peru. Maybe some of your friends went recently and you heard it was amazing, maybe you are fascinated by other cultures and wanted to understand a new one. Whatever your reason you took the plunge, booked the trip, clicked the button. The next thing you should do is book a hike on the Inca Trail .
Believe me, I wasn't sure I could do it, I tried to back out at least twice, and I ever would have done it if two of my best friends weren't already committed. But I'm so glad I did it. For me it wasn't quite life changing but it was definitely life affirming and life evolving. The trek is worth more than the view at the end - that is not only a cheesy metaphor for life but also something I learned along the way.
